4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staff are all great, the room was a little pricey, but I guess you have to consider the city of Arequipa seems to be a bit more pricey in general. The staff were very good about letting us store stuff there when we were out trekking!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful week long stay at Casa de Avila. Everyone that works at Casa de Avila is incredibly kind and helpful, even down to Marie, the cute maid that let me practice my Spanish with her. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable, and the garden area is fantastic. Really though, it's the staff that... More

This is a perfectly fine hotel for the price. It's very reasonable and the rooms are adequate. The best part of this hotel is the staff; they are very friendly and flexible, very helpful with anything you need. The setting is lovely; the rooms are situated around a large garden with tables and sun umbrellas. There's an open-air dinging area... More

The room was clean, the TV didn't get great reception but that wasn't really an issue, and Breakfast was fine. The staff at the front desk were very welcoming and helpful and the central garden was a great place to relax and read or have a beer.

We stayed for 2 nights on 17th and 18th. We checked in late, but front desk Alex took time to greet us and explained to us the whole facilities. We had two rooms on first floor. My room was a bit warm, but easy access to the garden! We booked the cooking class and "Lady" the chef taught us how... More

I stayed here for a week whilst doing spanish school. The team who work there were the friendliest and most welcoming I had whilst in South America. They all went out of their way to make me feel at home and to check everything was ok for me throughout my stay. As a solo traveller it meant I felt comfortable... More

I stayed at the Casa de Avila for 2 weeks as a student of the attached Spanish School Arequipa. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The student rooms are simple, but clean and have everything you need, including enough warm blankets! The garden area is just lovely for studying or hanging out after a big day and the food... More

Excellent hotel with very helpful staff. Breakfasts very good, with large courtyard and choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Lovely room overlooking courtyard. Staff recommended a walk to nearby park away from downtown.

Casa de Avila has some great and wonderful staff, very helpful and always polite. Great courtyard for eating and studying Spanish, okay breakfast (the usual fare). The room we had was clean, shower was great. Quiet location (at least by my standards). Interestingly, the clientele here is mostly older so if you're young and looking to party this is definitely...

This is certainly one of the best hotels I've stayed during my trip to Peru. It was an amazing surprise since we booked it without consulting trip advisor. The hotel is very very well located (close to most of the tourist places, markets, restaurants, etc). The structure of the hotel is simply amazing (it's like a big house turned into... More
